When your child enters Atrium, your whole family does, too. It was the founding vision of Ginny Kahn and director Bruce Droste that the school be a safe and respectful community where everyone is valued, from the youngest sibling to the eldest family member.
Atrium parents are involved in the school community and form lifelong friendships through the school. School programs and events throughout the year build and bring together the community. We plant in our gardens together, dine and dance under magical lights at the annual auction, put on boots to accompany our kids on tide pool field trips, sing rounds and harmonies together at weekly all-school assemblies, and share parenting ideas and discuss educational topics at PTA evenings. Day to day, Atrium’s halls and playground are places where parents linger and connect.
Extended family and friends join us to celebrate special seasonal gatherings: Harvest Assembly and BFG (Bring a Friend or Grandparent) Day in the fall, Solstice Assembly in the winter, and Spring Sing as we turn the corner to warmer days. At the end of the year, the community gathers for final assemblies and closing ceremonies, marking a year of learning and growth for all of our children.
Atrium’s connected and committed community is a powerful agent of education. Respect for each individual within a group and each individual’s membership in the community defines the essence of interaction at the school. Teachers, families, and administrators work to meet the evolving needs of children. Together, they form a partnership of mentors, collaborators, and allies who guide children to think and act responsibly.
